Seattle Seahawks second-year wide receiver DK Metcalf has blossomed into perhaps the scariest young receiver in the NFL.

Listed at 6-foot-4, 229 lb, Metcalf is an athletic force who is also developing chemistry with Russell Wilson and improving ball-catching skills that had dropped him to the second round of the 2018 draft.

On Sunday, during the Seahawks' 35-30 win over the New England Patriots, NBC showed a video of Metcalf going through his pregame warmups on the field. Metcalf's routine includes some high-flying, dazzling catches that had him easily reaching over the goalpost crossbar, which is 10 feet high.

NBC's Cris Collinsworth and Al Michaels joked about starting an NFL dunk contest.

Metcalf's preparation has translated to the field. Through two games, he has 2 catches for 187 yards and 2 touchdowns. In Week 2, he went head-to-head with reigning Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore and burned him. Metcalf's day included a huge, 54-yard touchdown.
